…not just tents…a camping equipment blog too!

Jack Wolfskin LogoWe are delighted to announce that our shopping site CheapTents, will supply Jack Wolfskin the leading European outdoor brand from April 2012. This will see us initially offering Jack Wolfskin tents, building to stock a complete range of Jack Wolfskin clothing, footwear and rucksacks in time for our winter collection this year.

Jack Wolfskin, is a leading brand in the outdoors market which over the past few years has begun to increase its presence in the U.K. Anyone watching Premier League Football will have no doubt seen prominent Jack Wolfskin advertisements as the company sponsors both Liverpool F.C. and Fulham F.C., which shows their intent to become a major player in the U.K. market. However, they are much more than a well oiled marketing machine! Their products are high quality, well designed and competitively priced.

Company Background

Jack Wolfskin, was first created in 1981 in Frankfurt Germany, with a desire through functionality and comfort to make people feel “at home” in the outdoors. Jack Wolfskin ensures that their products are made from sustainable resources and the company itself is based around respecting people and nature.

Jack Wolfskin company values
On one hand, our respect goes to the people who manufacture our products. We do not close our eyes to injustices which they might encounter. Our business associates – suppliers, their producers and subcontractors – must therefore live up to their duty of care toward their employees and observe nationally and internationally accepted standards.

On the other hand, our respect goes to the unbelievable beauty and variety of nature. Nationally and internationally valid environmental regulations must be observed and it is necessary to minimise potentially negative influences. For this reason, we contractually obligate our business associates to recognise and implement the standards we have set.
